patriot. he got on the train, taken home to new jersey and when his soldiers begged him not to go, he told them to support general burnside as they had supported him and off he went. a great moment that vindicated his patriotism in a difficult year. but the other thing to remember and i alluded to it in the speech was bad in april 1861, when the confederates fired on work sumpter, there was not a single man in the north who had ever led more than 1000 troops in battle. and the men who had led that anywhere in their 60's. the war was being commanded by, in the best case, captains in the regular army who had experience commanding one or 200 men and in the worst case, politicians who had never led a single person in battle. so the fact that lincoln had a hard time finding the generals who could lease -- lead these vast armies of 100,000 men are more shouldn't surprise us. .. and every day he heard from people urging him to do nothing about slavery, that the issue is not slavery. his southern border of the union was comprised of four slaveowning states, missouri, kentucky, maryland and de

patricia cornwell. each unto itself. it begs the question when we put an ad in "new york times" come it's not like putting an advertisement for a honda or a cadillac. it is one book. it is not random house advertising on its books. it's one book. it's a very different and very subjective business, which means that you can only fit so much when it comes to marrying books to readers, books for which publishers pay a deal for. when i was at schuster, they paid $8 million, which had been a record number for ronald reagan's memoir, called american life. you know, the math as well as i do. you need to sell 4 million books. not just write a million dollars, you need to sell 250,000. the book actually sold about 300,000 copies. so it was a spectacular failure. because of the comparison. it's a highly complex business with a very thin margin of process. when you add to that the dramatic changes in technology and the public demand, you have an industry that needs to redefine itself. nobody knows that more than the people sitting on the stage who are here to talk to you about it. you are either

you. but i beg to differ because the cheapest aircraft today at the united states in the middle east is in that region. we are in the frontline presenting the same value in same principles. you'll find the source is coming to shores. >> thank you. >> you know, i share your concerns about iran. i worry about it all the time. i think it's real. but growing up jewish, and learned that being jewish also meant caring about the stranger from the bible or the people of king david, but also people of the profits. what i didn't hear in your talk is forgive me, but any kind of humanity towards palestinians. i don't know what you paid to do with them. i don't think he thought about, no offense ap said the solution. does that mean turn gets the west bank. but i know if israel keeps territories commit either stop in a democracy or a jewish state. i know there's problems with houston has come a serious ones. i believe arafat could've made a deal at oslo and there could've been peace. i am not naÏve. but i think the constant building of settlements is undermining israeli security, causing the worl

system with debt and entitlement and get torch the knees begging government to save them. every step of the way. watch it that's what barack obama has done. he pulled the professor in front of the nation and no one stopped him. i have been saying it every step of the way. >> wayne allyn root is a libertarian different than a conservative? >> yeah. it's a little more moderate and tolerant on social issues which are almost meaningfulless. what difference does it make if you have gay marriage if you are gay and unemployed. what difference does it make if you have an abortion and you are employed. the answer is what matters is jobs. jobs and the economy. and so, you know, i think from every measure standard obama's a failure. back to libertarian. republicans had the chance with george bush. he was a failure. terrible president. the only guy worse than bush is barm. back to back you've had two terrible presidents. the difference is one supported capitalism one without any questions is socialist. the socialist is obama. libertarians on the other hand haven't caused any of the problem. we have

have a strange genius so ike was reluctant to get rid of them, begs to question to replace with whom? he did. i think he regretted it. john eisenhower told me that after the u2 was shot down, he went to his father on the plane to the paris summit about to collapse, the paris summit, and said to him, dad, you should have fired that guy, and ike blew up and basically said i'm the president of the united states, but it was a little defensive about it because, you know, he probably should have gotten rid of dulles. they are clearer in retrospect than they are at the time. ike was a great manager, but he was arguably a little slow to get rid of people. i think not in world war ii, no problem with sacking generals in world war ii, but maybe a little slow in his own administration, at least in the second term. this is one squishy area in his presidency. i spent a lot of time on it. my long study of intelligence on the outside, amateur at it, but presidents think you can snap your fingers, and the cia does miraclous things. it doesn't work that way. eisenhower did understand that. he was rea

system who spend their whole life doing press and begging, and they're called politician. and once in a while a publicker servant, we get one who also has the capacity to be a public servant and has a little time left over at the end of the day between lying and begging to take care of the country. [laughter] and as milton friedman said, we just don't have the time to bone up on the people who are trying to rob us through the x corporation, the people who are trying to rob us through the y union and the people who are getting a subsidy for this and that because we think about it for ten seconds a year, and they think about it all day every day. so there's only one thing that we can do, and that's to cut taxes and slash the size of the government. [applause] because, you know, who knows, who knows if there are confidence men. i don't know. you know, i met mitt romney. i like him very much. i shook his hand. on the other hand, i actually grew up and was born on the south side of chicago where obama claims to come from and was born in hyde park, and i saw that whole substratum -- i see eve

letters initially telling these. they start out kind of begging them and then they get really angry that would bring them down on you and the girl was down on you the confederacy really has a starvation level of food crisis and when that happens they know it's coming. governors and county clerks are writing each other and writing the secretary of war saying you can't take any more food out of the counties for the army. these people are starving. of the women stepped in at the moment to represent communities and they start really attacking the confederate government about the justice of the military policies. the rich man's war and the poor man's fight becomes as well the men are not home, the women step up and they start to rewrite power on the home front into their hands and the notes themselves as powerful constituencies of the state and county officials have to take account of and in the spring of 1863 there is a wave of riots the stores in atlanta and its more than a dozen sweeps the confederacy all by women from like a dozen in richmond to 300 followed by the crowd of a thousan

weeks later, three weeks later, kennedy himself is assassinated. and as you said before, this begs the question that historians argue about. we will probably keep arguing about that the next 50 years. what kennedy has mounted to -- what he have pulled out of the american troops in vietnam and the advisers if we didn't yet have the troops and the great numbers of the combat troops there? and you are doing think that indications are that he would have come in and you cite various sources about that. curious just to challenge that a little bit. there is a wonderful book by a story called choosing war which you probably know. in which he says that the viet cong attacks were doubling in november from the month before and south vietnam and that there were meetings of kennedy's tauter advisers which i think finished up the day before kennedy was assassinated. this would be a good film. and incidentally the viet cong we are going to win if they didn't do something very quickly. so, not to challenge the members of people who were devolve in the sand kennedy would have pulled out, but wouldn't i
